Default MultiWindow Manager for JB 4.1.2




You can take a look here to see that this is legit and not spam or malware:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2079807

This app will allow you to easily manage what apps can be run in multi-window mode. Now you can run any app in multi-window mode.

REQUIRES ROOT & JELLY BEAN 4.1.2

Update 1.1.3- Added support for others.xml and dexed the code so it should run a little faster now

Update 1.1.2- Fixed a bug preventing apps from being selected by clicking directly on the checkbox.

Update 1.1.1- You can now filter applications by enabled and disabled state

Update 1.1- Added icons to the list and streamlined the code under the hood a little bit.

Update 1.01- Apps not checked in the manager will be added to the feature.xml file with a preceding "-". This is to fix a bug where some apps were retaining multi-window features even after un-checking them in the manager

This app may convince me to finally root my Note. I didn't really have any need to prior.
Everything multi-window is just too powerful to skip.

I've had no desire to even look into rooting, but now I may. So what's the easiest method to root if I want my tablet to "feel" exactly the same? I don't care for too many custom tweaks or anything.

Use the guide that I made to root. It is really easy to use and there are no issues with it. The link is here.

Rooting does not change ANYTHING in how the tablet looks or feels. It only gives higher user rights on the device. It is like logging onto your PC with admin rights over logging into it as a guest with only user rights. Nothing really changes, but the system itself gives you higher privileges.

I am not sure if there are any other methods, but the main one is to just use ODIN and flash an unsecure recovery. Check the guide posted in All Things Root sub-forum.

Does mulitwindow manager place (or allow for placing) the desired apps in the quick-launch bar (or whatever it is called)?

Actually the point addresses is altering the ability to use apps in multiwindow. Nothing was mentioned about the dock. I haven't rooted yet so I'm just clarifying.

You can decompile the .apk and modify the androidmanifest.xml file then recompile it. Then you have to sign it, uninstall the original app, and install your modded .apk. After all that...you wont be able to get updates for the app through the play store.

There is a program for it, so no need to root really. Everything described in that previous post is done automatically for you and there is also a list of all apps that have already been modified by users. Do a search it has already been discussed and a link was provided.

Considering you cant get updates for any apps you mod...and you still have to transfer apks back and forth between your tablet and pc...its still easier to root.

It may be his only option because hes on 4.1.1...but we didnt know that at the time. If you are on 4.1.2...its definitely easier to root.

The only issue is warranty. At least for some.

Apologies for being stupid but should this also work with the galaxy s3? As I've just rooted it and am running 4.1.2 and it doesn't appear to work. If not, is there an equivalent app that will work on the s3?

It dose not work for S3. It is not supposed to work.


Search XDA for the S3 version. There is one.

That's a shame, thanks anyway. I've found the mod but it seems way too complicated for me to be able to install it!
